Hmm I think these are ready to plant today. Late planting for Melbourne as these will do much better if planted in autumn so they kick off first thing in spring. Planting late like this means a short harvest time before the erratic Melbourne climate decides to throw a hot summers day at us in spring, ending things for cool climate vegetables like snow peas and broad beans. To speed things up in this situation I've pre-sprouted on paper towel in recycled food containers. The paper is kept damp, re-wet every few days as long as the lid seals well keeping conditions inside like a mini greenhouse. So in less than 2 weeks these are going to be planted today and protected from hungry snails, slugs, birds and rats!
